Step By Step Guide To A Student Visa To France

Every student has a dream to study in a foreign country. European countries like France are some of the best educational institutes in the world. You can’t make it abroad whenever you want, and that’s why, to make your dream come true, the first requirement is a visa to France.

According to the best overseas education consultants, there are a variety of visas. For each kind of visa, you need to follow a procedure which is different for all types. Moreover, the type of visa you need totally depends on the type of course you are looking forward to study in your next destination. The type of visa that you will need will depend on the length of course, and that’s why you first need to decide what you will do after teaching your dreamland. Let’s know more about getting a student visa to France. 

Types Of Visas

There are four types of visas available for you to choose the one best according to your convenience. The details of all the types of visas are given below.

  • Short Stay Student Visa

Short stay visa is also known as Schengen short-stay visa. This type of visa is only for those students who want to study only around 2-3 months. If a student is thinking of a language course or any other short term course, then he/she can show his interest in this kind of visa.

  •  Examination Visa

As the name suggests, this visa is only meant for the person who wants to go to France for appearing in an entrance exam. This visa is valid when someone wants to study in an international institute. And if the student gets selected for the exam than its 90-day validity is extended to the duration of course.

  •  Temporary Long Stay Student Visa

This is a student visa, which is an extended form of short-stay student visa. The main difference between these two is only that in temporary long stay visa there is a validity of up to 6 months. Also, this visa cannot be extended and renewed. 

  • Long Stay Visa

For the students who want to stay and study in France for more than six months can apply only for a long stay visa. This visa is valid only until the course duration. For example, if you want to do a masters in France, the visa is applicable only for two years. And for bachelor, you can stay for a period of three years. And someone who wants to do his doctorate then he/she can stay there for four years.
